Visited here for lunch while on our honeymoon. Breathtaking view from the restaurant with the food and service to match. Reasonably expensive but you see why when you get there. A must visit!

We had lunch at the Delaire main restaurant last Sunday and the food was superb. This is seriously one of the best restaurants in South Africa.

I absolutely loved the food and views at this restaurant but the service was severely lacking. Our hostess, Caitlin, was shockingly rude. We had made our reservation months in advance and asked for a table with a view. Caitlin took us to a table that was jammed in a weird corner, with no view and next to the servers station.... More

We had dinner here on my husbands birthday. The views from the terrace where we had pre dinner drinks of the mountains and the valley beyond are simply stunning. For dinner we chose the tasting menu with wine pairings. The food was delicious and most beautifully presented and the wine pairings and the explanations given truly enhanced the experience. I...
